Great lunch experience at Red Bone Alley in Florence, SC

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Sunday, January 12, 2014, In : Food 
My husband and I went to lunch at Red Bone Alley and had such a wonderful experience. We just love dining there because of it's unique decor. The whole entire restaurant is a replica of downtown Charleston. You would not expect to find this here in Florence, SC.

We ordered their lunch specials, which are smaller portions of dinner portions of selective dishes and comes with a salad with your choice of dressing. I was impressed. They were still really busy during lunch because it was around th...

Fleet Landing is a great place for seafood in Charleston that is waterfront

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Thursday, November 21, 2013, In : Charleston 
We were recommended by a couple who lived locally to dine at Fleet Landing for seafood after a romantic sailing trip. We got there around 5:30pm on a Saturday night and it was busy. There was a 20 minute wait to eat inside but no wait to eat on the patio, which is a great option if you have a coat in hand. The patio is right on the water front and you can hear the waves crashing and the moon shining while you have your dinner. My husband ordered the fried flounder with apricot glaze and I ord...

Chipotle is now open in Florence, SC and I'm stoked

Posted by SCBeachtrips.com on Thursday, July 25, 2013, In : Food 

I've always liked Chipotle and it's a great thing that it's a chain because chances are if the small towns are big enough, they will open one. I always get the barbacoa burrito with tomato salsa, black beans, sour cream and guacamole. The guacamole this time cost me 1.80 extra so my burrito turn out to be over $9 with taxes and I didn't even order a drink. I guess it's really expensive for a burrito but it's so good, I'll fork over $9 every once in a while for it. 

What's a bonus is I got a go...

Pho An Hoa is pretty good in Charlotte, NC

Posted by scbeachtrips.com on Saturday, July 6, 2013,
We were visiting Charlotte, NC for the day and craving Vietnamese food. After doing some research online, we decided to go to Vietnam Grille but they were closed for vacation for July 4th week so then we decided to go to Ben Thanh. When we got to Ben Thanh, we discovered that the place was closed for vacation too! What the heck? Did they go on vacation together?

So then, we decided to go to the Vietnamese restaurant near Ben Thanh called Pho An Hoa and we were not disappointed! The pho and mi...

My favorite restaurant in Virginia Beach is Rudee's on the Inlet Restaurant (right next to the water)

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, In : Food 
My husband grew up in Virginia Beach, VA so he took me to Rudee's on the Inlet Restaurant for some seafood when we were in town an it is so amazing and romantic! We sat in one of their swinging cabanas and that itself was a unique experience. The service was great, even though they were so busy on a beautiful day. I ordered a berry mojito and my husband ordered a beer. For lunch, we ordered a lobster roll and a seafood platter that had scallops, shrimp, lobster and crab meat. I forgot the exa...

Red Bowl is my favorite place for sushi in Florence, SC

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Food 
Finally! I found my place for sushi in Florence, SC. Red Bowl sounds like it would be a fast food joint but it's not. It's a nice sit down with a full bar. They have specials for lunch and special combo specials for dinner as well. I've been here 3 times and for all 3 times, I opted in to get sushi and they never disappoint. They're all good so try them all! It's fresh with great ingredients. I also like that they don't overdo on their rice in the sushi portion. It's perfect. They also have s...

Palmetto Subs on West Evans St pleases the buds

Posted by Master Pet on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Food 
We went to Palmetto Subs for the first time over the weekend and we were so happy to find a great sandwich place in Florence, SC. My husband and I ordered the large #19 (their special sub) and split it. It was delicious. They know how to thinly slice their meat, veggies and provide great service. We will be back again. I want to try their tuna sandwich. (The size below is only half of the full large sandwich we bought. They kindly put it in two different plates.)

Myrtle Beach - There is so much to do!

Posted by SCBeachtrips.com on Friday, April 5, 2013, In : Myrtle Beach 
We went on a day trip to Myrtle Beach since it was only an hour away from where we live and it's unbelievable big! The boardwalk has a lot of shops, rides, walking areas and a nearby entertainment center called Broadway on the Beach (about a mile from the boardwalk).

The only thing that I wasn't prepared for is the traffic. The streets are narrow and there are sometimes only one lane for each direction so you can imagine the congestion. There are a lot of hotels in the area too. See this sect...

Bangkok House is a great restaurant in Myrtle Beach

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Friday, April 5, 2013, In : Myrtle Beach 
We were visiting Myrtle Beach for a day and wanted good Thai food in the area. We dined at Bangkok House that is located  at: 318 N Kings Hwy Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. We were there right when it opened at 11AM, a perfect time for their lunch specials. They were very affordable and there was nothing over 7 dollars on the lunch special menu, which includes your choice of entree, spring roll and soup! The owners are very nice and personable. We will come back again when we visit Myrtle Beach.

Disappointed with Little China Restaurant in Florence, SC

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Thursday, March 28, 2013,
Usually it takes at least 3 strikes for me to give a restaurant a bad review. This was our first time trying their Chinese food and what got us to drive to 2nd Loop for this is because we saw online that they have a very inexpensive lunch menu. 

First strike took place when they gave me the wrong thing. Soup or egg roll comes as a choice for your lunch entree as it said on the menu. I told the guy who took my order for egg drop soup but he gave me an egg roll instead. Maybe he heard me wrong b...

Chutnee Indian Restaurant pleases the taste buds - Florence, SC

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Thursday, March 28, 2013, In : Food 
We went to Chutnee (located on Palmetto St) for the first time yesterday and apparently they just re-opened with a new owner in March 2013. We really liked the service and they give you this free taco shell with every entree. I've always find Indian food very fascinating as a lot of spices go into play for just one dish. However, my stomach can't take Indian food well because of the acidic flavors but once in a while, it is a great treat for me. My husband and I ordered the Chicken Tikka, Lam...

Yogi Bear Honey Fried Chicken Review - Pretty Good but not impressed with Mashed Potatoes

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Friday, March 22, 2013,
I tried the Yogi beach Honey Fried Chicken from Hartsville, SC yesterday and was very impressed with a different type of fried chicken. As the name says it, it has honey in it. The only thing that I wish I had was a crunchier crust like Bojangles or Church's. Besides for that, I'd most likely come back for more. I love the Yogi Bear logo and it reminds me of my childhood. Branding here was successful in my book. I wasn't impressed with the mashed potatoes or the bread but the chicken made up ...
